Why do we vilify Cholesterol?

From Wikipedia, about cholesterol: “Cholesterol is any of a class of certain organic molecules called lipids. It is a sterol (or modified steroid), a type of lipid.Cholesterol is biosynthesized by all animal cells and is an essential structural component of animal cell membranes.
 
Cholesterol also serves as a precursor for the biosynthesis of steroid hormones, bile acid and vitamin D. Cholesterol is the principal sterol synthesized by all animals. In vertebrates, hepatic cells typically produce the greatest amounts. It is absent among prokaryotes (bacteria and archaea), although there are some exceptions, such as Mycoplasma, which require cholesterol for growth.”
In other words, it is essential:  “Cholesterol is essential for all animal life, with each cell capable of synthesizing it by way of a complex 37-step process”
And this article talks about cholesterol and the immune system as suggested here.

Cholesterol shows up in clogged arteries as part of the immune system trying to clean up problems caused by excess insulin and glucose!!!!!

Do NOT lower your cholesterol!
